You know I love that organic cooking
I always ask for more
And they call me Mr Natural
On down to the health food store
I only eat good sea salt
White sugar don't touch my lips
And my friends is always begging me
To take them on macrobiotic trips
Yes, they are

Oh, but at night I stake out my strong box
That I keep under lock and key
And I take it off to my closet
Where nobody else can see
I open that door so slowly
Take a peek up north and south
Then I pull out a Hostess Twinkie
And I pop it in my mouth

Yeah, in the daytime I'm Mr Natural
Just as healthy as I can be
But at night I'm a junk food junkie
Good lord have pity on me

Well, at lunchtime you can always find me
At the Whole Earth Vitamin Bar
Just sucking on my plain white yogurt
From my hand thrown pottery jar
And sippin' a little hand pressed cider
With a carrot stick for dessert
And wiping my face in a natural way
On the sleeve of my peasant shirt
Oh, yeah

Ah, but when that clock strikes midnight
And I'm all by myself
I work that combination on my secret hideaway shelf
And I pull out some Fritos corn chips
Dr Pepper and an ole Moon Pie
Then I sit back in glorious expectation
Of a genuine junk food high

Oh yeah, in the daytime I'm Mr Natural
Just as healthy as I can be
Oh, but at night I'm a junk food junkie
Good lord have pity on me

My friends down at the commune
They think I'm pretty neat
Oh, I don't know nothing about arts and crafts
But I give 'em all something to eat
I'm a friend to old Euell Gibbons
And I only eat home grown spice
I got a John Keats autographed Grecian urn
Filled up with my brown rice
Yes, I do

Oh, folks but lately I hae been spotted
With a Big Mac on my breath
Stumbling into a Colonel Sanders
With a face as white as death
I'm aftraid someday they'll find me
Just stretched out on my bed
With a handful of Pringles potato chips
And a Ding Dong by my head

In the daytime I'm Mr Natural
Just as healthy as I can be
But at night I'm a junk food junkie
Good lord have pity on me

Gawdzila: Well, she certainly fits the stereotype.
I'm glad she's having a good time and all, but frankly that sounds like a terribly unfulfilling existence to me.
Yay, repetitive manual labor every day.


I like doing manual labor. It is one of the most simple and fulfilling things you can do--doing things with your own hands, where you can see exactly how much you've done, and what the results are. It's a hell of a lot more satisfying than sitting in front of a computer all day, or dealing with other people.

And how many of you wish you had time to work in a garden, or re-do that old car, or build something for yourself? But you don't have time, because of your totally fulfilling job where you earn a lot of money, but get little else from it. Also, enjoy being fat.

Fifi Le Pew: I lived off the grid for one summer. No electricity or anything that requires it to run. Just other human company for entertainment. You'll probably not believe me, but it was blissful. Setting aside all your responsibilities for a few months straightens your shiat out.

That said, it was a grand experiment from my youth (when you are allowed to have grand experiments and not be called crazy). Had enough money to see me through (for such essentials as food & shampoo), and the only thing I had to care for was my big ole dog. Couldn't do it now, though -- way too many responsibilities

chains.

Alphax: robohobo: Why is it that Fark has such hate for people who live outside of society? I've noticed this in other threads, and I'm genuinely curious. Fark is generally all supportive of alternative lifestyles, but the second someone chooses to head out on their own, remove themselves from society and be self-sufficient, out come the claws. Same with folk who don't want to live in a city teeming with people.

Hmm, people in an online community and people who reject communities completely don't see eye to eye? This surprises you?


When its an online community who loudy prides itself on its open minded-ness, yeah, it does. And this woman isn't completely rejecting communities, she just lives in a very small one, away from larger societies bullshiat. She's not a hermit. And if she were, what of it? Farkers are always shouting to the rooftops that people should be free to live how they choose, fark who or what they want, and neener neener the haters. Apparently the line gets drawn when someone doesn't want to be a part of the group, because how could they ever not want to be part of the group? Fark really is like high school, sometimes.
